CUP*CUP pottery

there are these occasional shorter stretches of making where I commit to working with the more discrete “object”. It’s a more linear practice than my more elaborate installation works, and It seems to allow me to work assertively through ideas about function, decoration, and seriality. This intimate practice feels best captured under the pretext of CUP*CUP Pottery. it’s Somewhat of a meta-fiction that attempts to re-familiarize myself with my affection for ceramics; as a practice and as a force in our cultural myth.

the ceramic pot feels like such a natural attraction. It articulates my interest in a number of things whose edges rub up onto one another so well: historical concessions, a narrative charted by craft and the sculptural dexterity of simple forms that I seem consistently intrigued by.
